Unlike a piece of clothing, fragrance, or even a book, flowers are a gift that’s hard to get wrong. A lovely gesture for just about any occasion you can think of, bouquets are pretty much a universal pleaser. And with the power of the internet, sending them to loved ones in the same zip code or across the globe is easier than ever.
One of the best ways to surprise your mom on Mother’s Day, girlfriend for her birthday or partner on your anniversary is to send flowers to their workplace or their home. Not only will this be a huge surprise, it’s a great way to show how much you care and think of your loved one throughout the day.
If your giftee doesn’t love fresh flowers per se, don’t worry. Many of the best flower deliveries don’t just offer flowers. They’ll also send succulents, floor plants, balloons, food, jewelry and other decor items for same-day delivery. Below, get the bloom on 20 places to order flowers online.
1. The Bouqs Co.
If sustainable, eco-friendly farming is important to you, add The Bouqs Co. to your bookmarks list. The site partners with farms around the globe that practice sustainable, eco-friendly farming and grow only what they can sell, so they don’t waste the industry average of one out of every three stems. Of course, pretty much every florist and flower delivery service claims to be eco-friendly, so what sets The Bouqs apart? When you choose a floral arrangement, you can see photos and biographical information on the farmer who grew your flowers. By partnering with local, sustainable farms, The Bouqs ensures a high standard of environmentally friendly production.
As an added bonus, the bouquets produced by Bouqs are gorgeous. If you’re looking for a beautiful gift, we love their Exuberance bouquet.
2. Lovepop Flowers
BEST FAKE FLOWERS
You may already be aware of Lovepop thanks to their incredible greeting cards. This season, they’ve branched into flowers. That is, they’ve started to make pop-up paper bouquets. While these flowers aren’t quite the same as a delivery of live stems, a pop-up display will bring a smile to your loved one’s face and save the clean-up
This beautiful purple display is elegant and subtle with a delicate beauty that’s perfect for marking a wide range of occasions.
BEST FREE DELIVERY
You really can get everything at Amazon, even fresh flowers. It works like the rest of the site, aggregating various sellers onto their platform, and if you’re a Prime member, free shipping is available on most orders. But what you’ll be able to find here that you won’t on most other sites is access to wholesale flowers, not just arranged bouquets. This is a major plus if you have a DIY streak or need to cut costs for a big event.
We particularly love this Confetti Bouquet from the Stargazer Barns Amazon store. The colorful tulips and metal vase provide an elegant yet rustic look that will brighten up the recipient’s home. If tulips aren’t what you’re looking for, Amazon has countless more floral arrangements to choose from.
4. Send Flowers
The most budget-friendly of the bunch, Send Flowers has an arrangement for pretty much any price point. Options start as low as $19.99 for a bouquet. Non-floral gifts are available, too, like balloons, teddy bears and chocolate. Their Fresh Flowers Bouquet of carnations, poms and daisies is perfect for Mother’s Day, birthdays or any other special occasion. For extra brownie points, Send Flowers makes it easy to add a teddy bear, custom card, balloons or chocolates with your order.
5. Lula’s Garden
BEST FOR SUCCULENTS
Whether your loved one is allergic to fresh flowers or you don’t want to spend money on something that will die within weeks, consider giving succulents instead of a fresh bouquet this year. Succulents will last for years with very little care, and if you order them from Lula’s Garden, they come arranged in ready-to-display planters. Plus, their shapes and colors really do mimic freshly cut flowers, making these arrangements some of the best long-lasting alternatives to a dozen roses or a bunch of tulips.
BEST DEAL OF THE DAY
Much like FTD, Teleflora uses a network of local florists to fulfill their orders. This means that same-day delivery in most areas is more than possible, making a last-minute thoughtful gift easy to pull off. In addition, this site offers a unique “Deal of the Day” which allows you to choose what price you would like to pay and a florist will surprise you with a beautiful bouquet of seasonal flowers. It definitely takes the decision making out of ordering flowers. The flower delivery package seen below features roses, stargazer lilies, waxflower and carnations to round out the bunch in an elegant swirl vase.

BEST FOR PLANTS
Whether it’s Mother’s Day, your best friend’s birthday or a small treat for yourself, The Sill makes it easy to deliver beautiful potted plants to your loved ones.

17. The Home Depot
BEST FOR BULK
You know you can buy every kind of tool imaginable at The Home Depot. And, perhaps you already shop there for gardening supplies. But did you know you can also order flowers for delivery from the DIY superstore? The Home Depot specializes in bulk flowers, so if you want to order your mom 400 roses, this is where you should check first. 50 red roses (that’s just over four dozen) will only set you back $69.

MOST UNIQUE ARRANGEMENTS
Farmgirl Flowers delivers beautiful bouquets and more. In addition to unique arrangements, the company can create tablescapes for your holiday party or even provide dozens of different flowers along with greenery, so you can make your own floral displays.

We recommend Andrea with its fresh pink blooms and sage greenery. It comes presented in a whitewashed wood box that measures seven inches by seven inches.
20. Venus Et Fleur
If these arrangements of roses look familiar, that’s because you’ve probably seen them pop up on the Instagram feed of an influencer you follow. Venus Et Fleur specializes in Eternity Roses, which are preserved blooms that last up to a year when properly cared for. However, long-lasting roses don’t come cheap. A single preserved bloom costs $39, and larger arrangements range from a couple of hundred dollars to thousands. Yet, if you want your gift to stick and remind your loved one of you all year long, Venus Et Fleur is the best flower delivery service to use.
